Jervis McEntee Diary Entry, Monday, February 7, 1876, from the Jervis McEntee papers, 1850-1905, in the Archives of American Art, Smithsonian Institution

Saturday night attended the monthly meeting of the Century. Nicoll my candidate was elected. Met an English Artist a Mr. Paris who seemed much pleased with the Water Color Exhibition. Carl Schurz & Governor Tilden were present and seemed to be having a little discussion in a corner. It was a very pleasant meeting. I had no pictures there as I am keeping mine for the Academy. Sunday morning Gifford and I breakfasted together and then took the 9.10 train for Pokeepsie where we were invited by Major Wilkinson to meet Gertrude, Mary Gifford & Weir. It was a grey winter day and the effects along the river were very beautiful & tender. It rained last night and today is very mild. Gertrude went home, Gifford & Mary went to Hudson & Weir & I came to N.Y. where he lunched with me and then went home to New Haven. Found a letter from Lambdin which leads me to believe that he will be opposed to me in the Academy Constitutional amendments. He evidently wants to see what his party has to say. Recd. a nice letter from Alice Sawyer.
